We engaged this firm and found everything handled brilliantly.
Here is what we found. firstly,you can understand why this is New Zealanders premier holiday location. But there is more......forest fringed inlets,coves and sand dunes leading to popular beaches,one beautiful beach after another.
Up the coastal cliffs to the volcanic peak,Mauao,still fizzes with lots of steam. By walking,and hiking to secluded bays like Otarawaiwere,you follow well -trodden tracks among giant kauri trees.
Bought a snorkel set,as there is no shortage of places to snorkel or swim with dolphins.........If your bent is deep sea fishing or kayaking, its all here.
This area is 2-3 hours away from Auckland,offering a mix of rugged and forested hill-country,rich plains with agricultural tracks.
